Curtains for the historic Takoma Theatre?
WASHINGTON, DC — The landmark Takoma Theatre might soon be demolished. According to an article in the March 21, 2011 edition of the
Washington Post, the current owner of the abandon theatre working to have the ornate building razed in order to construct an apartment complex.
The District has rejected all of McGinty’s applications to raze the building, along with his appeals.
Now, adding urgency to the script, McGinty is openly rejecting an order from the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs to repair the Takoma’s roof, gutters and downspouts and to repaint the exterior of a building that hasn’t been used regularly since 2006.
